Residents in and around Flathead Lake are asking a judge to temporarily block federal officials from transferring a hydroelectric dam in northwestern Montana to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. The plaintiffs — state Sen. Bob Keenan, a Bigfork business owner; Verdell Jackson, supervisor of the Flathead Conservation District and Pointer Scenic Cruises — filed a motion in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia late Wednesday. The transfer is set to take place on Saturday.
